If you’ve decided to include a flower girl in your wedding party, don’t forget to thank her with a gift she’ll cherish forever. The gift itself can vary depending on the age of your flower girl, but she will appreciate the kind gesture regardless of what you choose. Here are some of the best flower girl gifts to celebrate your big day.
Preparing to be a Flower Girl
Being a flower girl is a big job, and the promise of a little gift can be the encouragement a young one needs to make it down the aisle with a big smile on her face. Many brides gift their flower girls a special toy or doll to keep them company on the big day and beyond. Royal Flower Girl Lottie was inspired by the real-life wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and she’ll inspire your little flower girl to walk down the aisle just like the Duchess!
Flower Girl Tips
Practice Practice Practice! It’s likely that the little one in your life has never dealt with so many eyes watching her, so it helps to have plenty of rehearsal under her belt. If she can’t practice at the actual ceremony site, make sure her family is practicing her role at home so she feels nice and prepared for the real thing.
Weddings in Lockdown
Micro-weddings are all the rage in times of masking and social distancing. If you can’t have the big boisterous wedding of your dreams, a small intimate ceremony can be just as special. Even if your flower girl can’t be there in person, have her dress up in a special outfit and participate via Zoom or Facetime. She can even throw the petals from the comfort of her own home!
Flower Girl Gift Ideas
While a gift doesn’t have to be a physical item, there are plenty of thoughtful things you can give to your flower girl on the day of your ceremony. Anything that will keep her busy during the “boring” parts will be extra handy too!
For the flower girl who loves to read, a good book can double as a form of entertainment during a long ceremony, as well as a heartfelt gift to thank her for participating in your big day. You can also inscribe a thoughtful message on the inside of the book to remind her of this special time for years to come.

If your flower girl loves jewelry, there are tons of options to give her something special. You can have a necklace or bracelet engraved with her name or initials, and gift it to her the day of the wedding. A simple piece of jewelry can add charm to her outfit and serves as a beautiful reminder of the big day.
A Special Friend
Many little girls love stuffed animals and dolls, and giving her a special bear or doll for your wedding can be a comforting way to help her down the aisle. Dress up a plush stuffie in bridal attire and they can look just as dapper as everyone else in your wedding party. If a doll keepsake speaks more to her spirit, Lottie Doll’s own Flower Girl doll makes a wonderful gift for her to bring home after the wedding and play flower girl at home!
For a little fashionista, a new piece of clothing can be both a practical and stylish way to thank her for participating in your ceremony. A cozy monogrammed jacket, some fuzzy slippers, or a new fancy hat can jazz up any outfit before, after, or even during the wedding.
The bride may need something borrowed and something blue, but her flower girl needs something practical too! Participating in a wedding can be quite a long process for little ones. You could fill a personalized tote bag with all sorts of practical gifts – art supplies, a water bottle, snacks, little toys and games. Anything to keep your flower girl entertained when she’s not walking down the aisle will keep everyone happy and smiling all day long.
